Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Very tasty use of leftover turkey. I substituted fresh mushrooms, and used cream of mushroom soup with some celery salt because that is what I had on hand. I also added some sauted onions, and some extra parmesan cheese. Thank you for the recipe.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Everyone enjoyed these. I did add about 1 /2 onion, which I slightly sauteed in a frying pan before adding to the beef mixture. I will add this recipe to my recipe box and use as my once a week beef recipe every once in a awhile. Very easy to make. Thank you for the recipe!

Fabulous Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Wow... these were good!! Everyone (including two kids) really liked. I did use a combination of red/yellow/green peppers and left out the mushrooms only because I didn't have any on hand (will try next time). I also added two cloves of minced garlic when I sauteed the peppers/onions/chicken. We served on non-fat tortillas with shredded cheese, sour cream and salsa with black cuban beans on the side. I made everything in 20 minutes - a good week night meal. Thank you for the recipe!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I wavered between four and five stars. In the end, I give this recipe five stars, because they taste so good. The only thing I would like is to have them turn out a little crispier. I will try to add cornstarch in place of some of the flour next time, like a previous reviewer suggested, to make them a bit crispier.. I made these on a cold, rainy Southern California morning. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so substituted skim milk with a 1 1/2 tsp white vinegar (let the milk and vinegar sit for fove minutes - voila! buttermilk substitute). I also added lots extra cinnamon (1 tsp.) and added extra sugar (about 3 tblsps.). We served with a warm fruit topping (frozen mixed berries, water, a bit of sugar, lemon juice cooked on the stove - add water/cornstarch mix in the end to thicken). Thank you for the recipe!! The whole family enjoyed.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
This recipe was very easy to make and very tasty. The whole family enjoyed, and was good leftover in bean, cheese, rice and chicken burritoes. I used red pepper because I didn't have any green pepper, but next time I will use green - the green color will make a nice contrast to the red in the tomatoes. Thank you.

Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Wow...delicious!!! I would give it ten stars ,too, if I could (as per another reviewer)! This is the exact same recipe as Poppy Seed Bread III on this website, except that recipe calls for baking at 400 degrees. That is way too high for my oven. This recipe is just right, although I always bake my muffins and breads at around 325 or 335 for a little longer so the edges don't burn. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Yummy... five stars as is, but easily modified. I followed the recipe and portion sizes. I did add a 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, onion powder and pepper to the crockpot, and used chicken broth instead of water. I also found (as per another reviewer) that I needed to cook the biscuits a lot longer than 30 minutes. I cooked them for almost two hours. This is a delicious recipe. Next time I will add fresh celery and carrots. I liked adding two cans of biscuit mix. I will also try using Bisquick one time. A keeper recipe that can be easily tweaked. Thank you.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
Thank you to your grandfather Sam for this wonderful recipe. I made it a little healthier by using 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour. For the 3/4 cup oil I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil. I also didn't have coconut on hand, so I omitted (but will add next time I make it). Well worth the effort! I also added just a little bit of cream cheese frosting. Thank you - I sense this will become a favorite in our house!!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Really enjoyed this easy chili! I did half the amount of tomato juice called for, as I read other comments about the chili being a bit too soupy. I also added a whole chopped green pepper. I thought the consistency and flavor were very good. Made it yesterday in the crock pot. After my son had friends over there is only one small serving left today! will add to my recipe box. Thank you, George.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

I used a sirloin steak on sale cut into strips. I also used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, and and only used about 8 ozs. sour cream. Very delicious and easy to make! Thank you for the recipe.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This banana bread was very easy to make. I did use the full amount of bananas 2 1/3 c. which turned out to be about 4 1/2 bananas. I also used half whole wheat, half white flour. I cut back on the butter by almost half and added some plain yogurt and sour cream to make up the difference. I then added 1 tsp. pumpkin pie mix (I was out of cinnamon) and 1 cup chopped walnuts. Sounds like a lot of tweaks, but that is the beauty of this type of recipe. Easy to make and modify.

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Easy and healthy...can't beat that! I broiled my halibut on each side with sauce instead of barbequing. My 13 year old son loved it! Thank you for the recipe.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Very easy to make. It's the traditional butterscotch oatmeal cookie recipe - can't go wrong with these cookies! I always bake my cookies at about 365 degrees instead of 375 - I find that temp. too high. Thanks for the recipe!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
I drink a lot of smoothies and I never thought to add oatmeal or vanilla, so for giving me a healthy new way to make smoothies I give this five stars!! I like honey instead of sugar, and like to add some plain yogurt to my smoothies to get the added benefit of yogurt. Thank you for the new recipe - this can so easily be adapted (different fruits, milk instead of soy milk, add yogurt, etc.) I will make many variations of this! P.S. A very healthy addition to any smoothie is 1-2 teaspoons of ground flax seed - found at Trader Joe's or health food stores.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Thank you for the recipe - easy and delicious. A nice change of pace for carrots. Note: I like to use white pepper in a recipe like this - it has a slighlty different taste than black pepper.

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
We all enjoyed this recipe, even my 6 and 13 year old children. I did make a few changes to make it healthier: I substituted a ground vegetable beef mix for half the ground beef (no one in the family even notices). I used red, yellow and orange peppers instead of green. I used fresh garlic (crushed and sauteed with the beef mixture) in place of powder. I added 1 tsp. Worcester sauce. And I used a shredded light cheese mox instead of straigh mozzarella. Hope these ideas are helpful!! Thank you for the recipe.
